Voegerl sparks Columbus North boys soccer to victory
August 30, 2013Columbus North High School
COLUMBUS, Ind. -- Senior Keaton Voegerl scored a goal and added an assist Thursday evening (Aug. 29), boosting the Class 2A No. 1 Columbus North boys soccer team to a 3-1 victory over Cathedral at Richard Wigh Soccer Complex.
Voegerl played a key role in the game's opening goal, firing a shot from the left side that Cathedral goalkeeper Will Meulbroek blocked. However, CN sophomore Sam Snider came streaking in from the right side and blasted home the rebound for a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute.
The Bull Dogs (3-0) extended their lead in the 27th minute when senior Ethan Smith came up with a loose ball about 12 yards out, then flicked it past Meulbroek for a 2-0 advantage.
The Irish (1-1) cut their deficit in half just five minutes into the second half when senior Nick Foley took a pass from classmate Teddy Price and slid the ball past CN goalkeeper Ben Davis.
But Voegerl effectively iced the game in the 60th minute, capping a play that began moments earlier on the other end of the field. Davis started the play with a long punt past midfield to senior Andre Abedian, who in turn tipped the ball to his right. Voegerl took the pass and deposited the ball into the top left of the net from about 12 yards out.
Senior Matt Verplank played the first half in goal for Columbus North, making two saves over the first 40 minutes. Davis played the second 40 minutes, making five saves during his time in the nets.
Columbus North won the JV game 1-0. Sophomore Alan Rodriguez's goal off a feed from freshman Cameron Phillips in the 64th minute proved decisive. Sophomore Preston Grimes and freshman Mark Tabor each played one half in goal and shared the shutout. Grimes made three saves, and Tabor recorded two.
The Bull Dogs return to action on Saturday (Aug. 31) in the annual soccer quadruple-header against Columbus East. The boys JV plays at 2 p.m., the girls JV at 4 p.m., the boys varsity at 6 p.m. and the girls varsity at 8 p.m.
